Alexis Maddox[1] is a furry artist and writer from the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA area.

Real life[edit]

Alexis is a pre-op male to female transgender who identifies as female and uses she/her pronouns. She has a deep affection for all animals and has had this affection since she was a young child. That love soon expanded to animated cartoons as she grew up in the era of DuckTales, Darkwing Duck, TaleSpin and many other.

Alexis is an avid fan of the Pittsburgh area sports fans. She is also a fan of Doctor Who, having adopted the nickname Ace from the Seventh Doctor's companion. She has grown up a fan of My Little Pony, having been watching since generation one.

It wasn’t until 1999 that she came to identify with the fur community, upon discovering The Gneech’s The Suburban Jungle webcomic. The main characters, in particular Tiffany Tigress and Leona Lioness that showed her that females could be strong and dominant in their own rights. Another character, Drezzer Wolf helped her come out, which she has done a total of four separate times. Her family does not approve, and she is working to remove herself from that situation.

Fandom involvement[edit]

Alexis has been in the furry fandom for eighteen years, since that fateful day she found The Gneech's comic. From her humble beginnings she’s used various names including Ravyn DeLaFae when SoFurry was still YiffStar and its chat was Yiffchat. She’s bounced from name to name until finally settling on Alexis or Ace. This is the name she decided on for herself, after three years of being out as transgender, the name is the same for the fursona .

She is also an avid roleplayer and mingles on Twitter, trying to help other furries on there and just generally hang out. She can be found in either the SoFurry chat room or the F-List's chat room as well as Telegram and Discord, but she doesn't give that info out unless asked.

She was at Anthrocon 2017 when she was at a panel run by Steel the Warrior Tegan thought she found her fursona--a cheetah. It didn't last.

In 2018, she applied for and received membership into the Furry Writers' Guild. [2]


One of Alexis' characters is a tiger named Tegan Ainsley. The reason why is because Alexis is a victim of abuse, as both her parents have mentally and physically abused her. When choosing her fursona, during the entire time she's been in the fandom, she struggled going from wolf (named Ravyn DeLaFae (whose profile no longer exists) to a fox, until settling on big cat, wanting to be bigger than her attackers in a sense.

On January 28, she settled on a cougar named Alexis, but more common called Ace [3]. She did this after reading the eastern cougar was going to be declared extinct as well as her love of the animal. It also ensured that she'd never have to make the decision again, having both of her favorite species as characters.


Tegan, the tiger, is not Alexis the human. It took Alexis a bit to realize that she had the wrong fursona. They both are different since one is fictional and they only share a hometown in common. Tegan, the character,is a genetic female tiger. Sometimes, Tegan is portrayed as The Doctor, usually incarnations One thorough Eight but mostly the Eighth Doctor, in Alexis' fiction. This represents, to the human, her status as an older character and thoughts of 'long ago'. Tegan, if anything, would be more character than fursona used on a whim in situations that wouldn't make sense for Alexis

Alexis, commonly called Ace, the cougar, is more like Alexis the human. The cougar is a transgender feline who was born human. Due to a terrorist attack using nanogenetic technology, she was transformed into her current state. She wanted to become a model to show that people in her situation could move up in the world quickly and get over what happened. She eventually rose to the top, gaining wisdom from a tigress and lioness that may or may not be (pending permission) Tiffany Tigress and Leona Lioness.

Sometimes Ace is used as an incarnation the Doctor, usually the War Doctor to the most twelfth. This is to represent 'days to come' and the promise of a bright future despite what the past may have caused

Convention attendance[edit]


It was in the Anthrocon 2017's conbook that her short story, New Ball Game, written under the pen name Lynn Brooks, was published.[4]
